Billie Eilish and her family got a judge to extend a restraining order against a stalker for three more years.
The man, 24-year-old Prenell Rousseau, showed up repeatedly at the Eilish family's Los Angeles home over two days in early May and displayed what was described as “erratic behavior.” He is now barred from attempting to contact or coming within 100 yards of Eilish or her parents, or from coming near Eilish’s workplaces.
Eilish, her attorney and her parents phoned in to last week's hearing, held in a courtroom that was empty except for a reporter from the Associated Press and court staff because of coronavirus restrictions. All including the judge wore face masks. Eilish did not speak.
Neither Rousseau nor an attorney for him appeared at the hearing, and messages left by Billboard with possible relatives of the man were not returned.
Rousseau allegedly tried to gain access to the Eilish home, rang the doorbell, spoke to Eilish's father and security guards, and even took a nap by an outer wall. He did not practice coronavirus-appropriate physical distancing, nor did he wear protective gear properly while speaking to staff. He also refused to leave when asked.
